Desiree from Chicago, IL

I'm newly employed! I need a bed to be well-rested & ready for work.

A bed is critical to my ability to thrive at my new job! I need to be well-rested and ready to work.


Desiree's bed is giving her the good night's sleep she deserves! Apr 7, 2016

Desiree had this to say to her Benevolent supporters: "I want to thank you all for my bed. It's very comfortable and I've been getting very good sleep at night, and sometimes during the day. Again, I thank you. You guys are awesome! Here's a photo of my new bed."


I am a newly hired person through the CARA program. I currently work for the airport part-time for 6 months. I have been hired for a permanent position that I was seeking.

My goals are to further my career with this company and to learn all that is available to me.

I need assistance with a comfortable bed that I can get the needed rest to make it to work and stay efficient in my job.

Meeting this need will help me because I can maintain stability in showing up for work well rested and ready to work.

Thank you for helping Desiree fund this need.

I've known Desiree about a year now. She came in the program and embraced all the classes that we had to offer without complaint. She was eager to learn and to get a job to become more self sufficient and she did that. I believe with this help, her life will be so much better.
